Ideal Lower Vancouver Island Home Base
I've rented several VRBOs and this was the best one yet, for many reasons. Five of us participated in this seven-day rental, three single adults and one couple, and our primary purpose was to hike the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. We also explored Sooke and the coastline and beaches between Sooke and Port Renfrew, and we spent a full day in Victoria. The property was ideally located for our plans. The house was huge, bright, airy and exceptionally clean. The four bedrooms and two large living areas were stylishly decorated, and the beds and furniture were modern, clean and comfortable. Our favourite gathering place at the end of our busy days was the large leather sectional sofa with two reclining seats in the upper great room. The big bright kitchen provided lots of counter and seating space, and all the tools and equipment we needed to prepare, cook and serve our meals. We barbecued all our dinners on the sunny deck, and baked a blackberry pie with berries picked on the property. The dishwasher, fridge, stove and barbecue were very clean and worked perfectly. The paper/plastic/organics recycle system was all set up for us so recycling was easy. The three bathrooms were very clean, modern and well-appointed, and the water pressure was great. There were lots of good-quality towels available. We did a few loads of washing in the big laundry room, and appreciated being able to hang our delicate synthetics on the clothesline in the back yard. The owner kindly made himself available when we arrived to give us the keys, some basic info and to answer our questions. He was pleasant and helpful. Half way through the week when we had filled the large bin in the garage with our organic compostables, I phoned him and he removed it for us. I highly recommend this property.
